One of Rock’s first supergroups, Cream, played a show at Beloit College.

July is the anniversary of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker joining together to form one of Rock’s first supergroups. The year was 1966 and the band was named Cream.

They were only together for two years, but they played several shows.

During the late 60’s and early 70’s, Beloit College hosted some great concerts including Frank Zappa and Jefferson Airplane.

On March 21st in 1968, Cream played a show at Beloit College.

According to Round Table,

“Beloit was on the musician’s map way back when bands traveled by Volkswagen bus. Big acts performed at one of the many venues or clubs in Beloit before hitting up Chicago, Madison or Milwaukeeand Beloit College.”

“I was a senior in high school at the time. I grew up with musicians but I knew this was special. When they began to play the place exploded.”

When I talk music and concerts with my Father-in-law, he always brings up going to see incredible shows in Beloit, including Cream.

Nowadays, it’s hard to imagine a Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame and so influential Band like Cream, playing a show in a small town like Beloit.

Were you at that show?
